Sneak Peak: Satellite Shop at IDEA
Second Cycle Community Bicycle Shop is developing a satellite location in South Tacoma that will build upon our work with youth. In conjunction with IDEA, an industrial design high school, we will run youth programming and an open workshop. This location will expand and build upon our current youth programming and delve into fabrication and design. In addition to serving youth, the open shop space will be available for the surrounding community to utilize on weekends. The Eastside of Tacoma is diverse, home to multiple ethnic groups and tight-knit immigrant communities. This neighborhood, separated from the rest of the city by a major interstate, is lacking a neighborhood bicycle shop, and Second Cycle will fill a significant need—not only by providing a community-based bike shop, but by providing opportunities for low income youth and youth of color.
